NATO raids kill 85 civilians in Libya

August 9 2011
At least 85 civilians have been killed in the latest NATO airstrikes in Libya near the western city of Zlitan, a Libyan official says.

The attacks took place in the village of Majer, south of Zlitan, which is located 160 km (100 miles) east of the capital, Tripoli, late on Monday, Libyan government spokesman Mussa Ibrahim said, AFP reported.

Thirty three children, 32 women and 20 men from 12 families were killed in the “massacre,” Ibrahim added.

“After the first three bombs dropped at around 11:00 p.m. (2100 GMT) on Monday, many residents of the area ran to the bombed houses to try to save their loved ones. Three more bombs struck,” he further said.

The US and NATO have unleashed a punishing, UN-mandated offensive against embattled Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi in an alleged attempt to pressure him into giving up power.

NATO has conducted thousands of airstrikes against Libya since it assumed control of the military campaign in late March.

The airstrikes by the military alliance have killed many civilians as well as revolutionary forces that are fighting against the government troops.

Experts say the main motive behind the Western attack on Libya is the vast oil reserves of the North African country. Source

NATO is also going to poison the land, water and people with radioactive garbage (DU), as they have everywhere else they go. In the end millions will die. Seems like an instant replay of Iraq, Afghanistan or anywhere else NATO goes..We can expect death rates to skyrocket from cancer etc. NATO always give the gift of death that keeps on killing for years to come. They have the Gaul to call themselves the good guys.

War for resources is old hat for NATO and friends.

NATO and the US should be ashamed of themselves and their people need to tell their governments enough is enough. They are sick of their bloody wars.

Every time NATO and the US start yet another war the price of Gas/Oil goes up.

Guess who pays for all those wars your tax dollars? You who are just getting by.

I am sick of paying for their bloody wars.

I am fed up with all the deaths of innocent people.

The wars are destroying the environment of the world. That radiations goes with the wind. You can expect cancer rates around the world to go up yet again like one in three isn’t high enough. I guess they want to kill off everyone of us.  So when we all die of radiation, who will be left? Then I guess they will say oops we made a mistake. Well it will be to late then. No wonder Health Care costs are going up all the time, the war machine is making us all sick. Don’t ever think because it is in another country you are safe you are not.

When the Nuclear reactor in Japan went up it spread all around the entire planet. Especially the Northern hemisphere but it will make it’s way south in the near future. Radiation knows no boundaries, nor does DU radiation.

I will be starting new pages of photos of the dead in days to come.

I am sure there will be many.

‘NATO after vast oil reserves in Lybia’

August 10 2011

A political analyst says he believes that the main motive behind the Western attack on Libya is the vast oil reserves of the North African country.

“It is undoubtedly true that the oil resources, the natural resources of Libya, are an important issue for the Western powers… even more important than the oil resources was the desire to intervene in the process of the Arab revolutions and to try and get some control over.” John Reese, from Stop the War Coalition, said in an exclusive interview with Press TV.

NATO has conducted thousands of airstrikes against Libya since it assumed control of the military campaign in late March.

NATO has deployed its full range of aircraft in the war on Libya.

The developments come as the Western forces claim the operation in Libya is aimed at protecting civilians.

Scores of civilians have been killed in Libya since US-led forces launched aerial and sea attacks on the North African country.

Libyan troops have also killed thousands of civilians since a revolution started against embattled ruler Muammar Gaddafi in mid-February.

Reese also criticized Saudis involvement in Bahrain, saying that Washington gave them the green light to attack the Bahraini people.

He concluded that Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah was pursuing the US interests in the Middle East.

Critics accuse the West of hypocrisy over the offensive on Libya, along with its silence towards the brutal crackdowns on similar anti-regime movements elsewhere in the Arab world, such as in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.  Source Very informative video at site.

LIBYA produces 1.7m of the world’s 88m barrels a day (b/d) of oil. OECD countries import 1.2m b/d, and China another 150,000. The chart shows which of Libya’s main export markets are most dependent on it for their oil. The little boxes at the right on the graph tell who imports the most.  . Italy is the biggest importer: in 2010 it took 376,000 b/d .

Libya has the largest proven oil reserves in Africa with 42 billion barrels of oil and over 1.3 trillion cubic metres of gas. With only 25% of Libya’s surface territory explored to date there is every chance that actual reserves could see this figure dwarfed in coming years.

As Europe’s single largest oil supplier, the second largest oil producer in Africa and the continent’s fourth largest gas supplier, Libya dominates the petroleum sector in the Southern Mediterranean area and has ambitious plans for the future.

More than 50 international oil companies are present in the market and together with subsidiaries of the Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) are contributing to the country’s current production capacity of 2m b/d. NOC plans oilfield investment of some $10bn over the coming three years to increase potential production.
